King Charles III will grant Archie and Lilibet royal titles after Prince Harry's memoir release

King Charles III won’t inherit titles to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children until the release of Harry’s memoir, claims royal expert.

According to Independent, Katie Nicholl, the author of The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth's Legacy and the Future of the Crown, wrote that Charles has been waiting for the “release of Harry’s memoir to decide if the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s children will receive their royal titles”.

In the excerpt published by Vanity Fair, the royal author mentioned, “When Charles became King following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Harry and his wife Meghan Markle’s two children inherited the right to be a HRH, with three-year-old Archie a prince and one-year-old Lilibet a princess.”

Nonetheless, Nicholl mentioned that Archie and Lilibet’s royal titles “haven’t been updated on the royal family’s website”.

“We know titles matter to Charles, and he reportedly wants to limit them to the top tier of royals. He is also reportedly reluctant for his brother Prince Edward to take the title Duke of Edinburgh, even though it was their late father’s wish,” she penned in the excerpt.

Meanwhile, a source spilled to Nicholl that Charles is waiting to see “what Harry writes about the royal family in his upcoming memoir” to be published in 2023.
